Hi everyone, I cannot find a part for my P3Adv.
There are four small vibration dampeners above the gimbal, these are secured in place with 4 see-through pins.
The dampeners I can find in the shop, but these don’t appear to come with the pegs, of which I’ve just discovered, I have one missing.
Any idea where I can get these?
Thanks in advance, Coxy

If you are having a hard time locating the pegs you might want to search eBay for someone with a non-working P3 that has the gimbal plate still attached. Plus you might end with other spare parts that might come in handy.

This seems to be the go-to place in the UK for repairs - perhaps you can order parts through them as well:     https://www.heliguy.com/dji-uk-repair-centre-i18

You can use zip ties in place of the pegs.  You only need two.

You can use a small wire tie that's works just as good.

Only two of the 4 dampers have the clear plastic pins in them from the factory.

Can you take a picture of the part you are missing? I would recommend you ask the local retailers and see if they have the pegs in stock.

Well it turns out that it only ever had two pegs.
I had a crash and replaced the props and prop guards, but noticed I had pegs missing - tried to find replacements on DJI store, couldn’t find them, so came on the forum, only to discover they’re not missing at all

Aloha Coxy,

     Good you found out about the two pegs!  As noted by some of the members above, put zip ties loosely in the two dampers that do not have the pegs.  Make sure that they are not tight because they can affect the damping if they are too tight.  This will help keep the gimbal plate attached in a crash or hard landing.  Sometimes they also vibrate loose so it helps with that to.

     You might also want to tape over the ribbon connections where they plug in with office invisible tape.  Lightweight and it keeps the ribbons plugged in.  I also tape the ribbon where it is loose and might snag on a branch or other object and rip the ribbon.  Make sure the gimbal still has full range of motion though.

     BTW, there is a way to take off the pegs without destroying them (since they are so hard to find).  Check YouTube or come back here to the Forum.

     Hope this helps!

Aloha and Drone On!

There are a couple of listings on Amazon for these parts, including an OEM listing.
